Audio Return Channel (ARC)

The Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 features Audio Return Channel (ARC) (as do the Bose Soundbar 500, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and the Sonos Beam), whereas the Razer Leviathan does not feature this benefit. More ...

A subwoofer boosts the bass quality of the soundbar, allowing it to have far more powerful bass than would otherwise be possible.

Wall Mountable

'Audio Output' denotes the number of individual channels for the soundbar to use. Specific sounds and parts of the screen are assigned to individual channels, allowing the soundbar to simulate surround sound and create a deeper audio depth.

More channels mean that the sound will be more spread across the channels, leading to a richer surround sound 'effect'.
